Busy Hands and Busy Minds
Activities abound at The Doolittle Home to keep residents’ hands and minds busy and active. Exercise sessions are offered in the main house and in the nursing unit to help residents maintain their strength. Bowling is such a popular activity that in addition to the bowling team, there is now an assisted bowling group for those who need some additional assistance.
Sharp minds abound as evidenced by the competitive activities such as trivia contests and spelling bees. The residents enjoy guest musicians and the monthly poetry reading. Residents enjoy playing bingo and now play password with the neighborhood poodle, Elvis. Residents are even enjoying making their own greeting cards with rubber stamps. The sing-alongs always draw a good crowd.
Religious services are held each week in the home with a variety of local clergy offering services on a rotating basis to ensure that residents have exposure to the faith of their heritage.
Residents love having visitors to the Home and they are blessed with frequent visits whether it is children from the local nursery school, Cub Scouts, Brownies, the local senior citizen singing group, church groups or the high school musical groups who come here to visit the residents and brighten their days.
